Furniture - Moral guardians
This is one of my favourite Betty Boop cartoons. Stuck in a game a chess, Miss Boop has to fight off the letcherous advances of the king. Not to worry though, even the furniture itself is looking after her honour and modesty. A chair replaces the hem of her dress when it becomes displaced; with a polite 'thank you' from the heroine. When it looks as if the king will finally get his evil way, the bed runs out of the room! The king doesn't stand a chance in this game.

Classic early Betty
Chess Nuts begins in the dull, real-life world of a chess game. Betty then falls onto the real-life chessboard, and all anthropomorphic heck breaks loose. Bimbo and Koko appear, and the real life chess board and pieces morph into a strange, surrealistic world of classic Betty Boop. This pre-code episdode is one of Betty's raciest, in which she can't seem to keep her dress on. Her suiter carries her into a bedroom, but the bed has other ideas. This one is a must for Betty fans.
